Woody Guthrie: iHard Times and Hard Travellin
HARD TIMES AND
is a captivating "live documentary" that sets the songs of Woody Guthrie in the context of the American 1930s –the Dust Bowl, the Depression, the New Deal and the state of popular music itself.Such hard-hitting Guthriesongs as "Vigilante Man", "Pretty Boy Floyd" and "I Ain't Got No Home" are brought into conversation with other relevant songs - from Joe Hill's"The Preacher and the Slave"to "Brother,
Can You Spare a Dime?". Altogether,the show highlights the blending of musicand radical politics that marks Guthrie's most powerful work."
